Victor and I live in a rented house in Omeo, Victoria. A high country rural village. Population 406. Until our home at ‘Swifts Creek. Life At The Top Of The Mountain’. Population 278. +2! Is finished. I go for a walk at sunrise. Camera in tow. And no matter how often I tread the same path. There’s always something different to photograph in this charming hamlet of Omeo. I post one photo a day. ~Carol❤
Couriers connect Omeo to the outside world. Our nearest regional centre. Bairnsdale. Is 2 hours away. And. When there are ferocious bushfires. As there are now. And The Great Alpine Road is closed for 10 days. Or more. These couriers take the back routes.
Grinter Transport takes 4+ hours. One way. To make sure Omeo gets much needed supplies. Fresh food. Pharmacy medicines. Australia Post mail and parcels. We depend on them. And they don’t let us down. ~Carol❤
